“Save it For a Rainy Day”
Written by Andrew Dorff, Matt Ramsey, and Brad Tursi
Okay, now I’m confused.
Are you telling me that sometimes people go out and drink because they want to get away from a bad memory?
All these party songs of the last few years have transformed drinking from the means to an end into the means and the end.
Chesney’s the original island party boy, but he’s got enough years under his belt to add some heft to this one. It doesn’t sound like a young guy getting over a college flame. Sounds more like a serious long-term relationship went down the tubes, and he needs a day of distraction to put off the tears for a few hours.
The sun is shining today, but the storm clouds will soon gather again, and he’ll be crying along with the skies when they do.
For now, though, he’ll have a beer. Makes sense.
